Little Miss USA

I know it has been way too long since I have posted on this blog. My laptop cord broke and it took over two weeks to get one that fit. I have lots to blog about so I will try to do a new post daily for awhile.
On Saturday, June 13 we got a letter from the USCIS stating that Johanna's citizenship had been approved. I was very excited!! We would have to drive to Wichita to pick up the certificate so we would do that at the end of our vacation. The first day of vacation we went to "Build-A-Bear" to make Johanna a red, white and blue doggy with USA clothes on.














Here we are in front of the USCIS office in Wichita with Johanna's "Certificate of Citizenship." Johanna is wearing her "Little Miss USA" outfit.

Love the pictures memorializing the event of getting the Certificate of Citizenship. we did the same thing -- ours came in the mail -- I pulled out the camera to make it a kodak moment. love the matching tops idea too when you werw at the build a bear store, or was that coincidence? Oh that I would be so coordinated with my daughter.

I love build a bear. We always do 'build a dinosaur'.

I love the red, white, and blue bear! Cute pictures.

Congratulations on her citizenship. Luca has his but in his other name. I really need to get his new one applied for.

Hi, I noticed from your blog that you have a child from Guatemala, (she is adorable) and live in Kansas. We recently moved to Wichita and have 2 children from Guatemala. I am looking for a group in the area and thought you might know if it is available. Thanks so much. Mary
